Being Natural Does Not Guarantee Length!


I have been asked this question a few times now. A lady at her wits end writes in saying that her relaxed hair is breaking at an alarming rate and wants to know which products she should get to stop the breakage.

After clearing up the issue of ‘No one product will stop breakage forever if you are not treating your hair right’ she then comes back with the question ‘Will going natural make my hair grow longer?’

It is difficult to give any sort of accurate answer to a question like that because there are so many variables involved however there is one thing that remains fact; Natural hair is stronger than relaxed hair.

Truest thing I’ve read. I’ve been natural for 15 years and yet my hair is no longer than it was when it was relaxed. Due to having really tight curls and thick strands my hair breaks every time I touch it. All I can do is try not to manipulate it too much, and keep it moisturised. Thanks for your great articles.
